Dr. Dykstra's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dykstra "I wanted to go into medicine to help people, and I choose family practice to help me reach this goal. Developing personal, long-lasting relationships with my patients has always been very important to me. When I was interviewing for medical school, I was asked what my ideal practice would be. I told the interviewer that I would like to see patients I knew so well that I did not even need to use a chart. The interviewer laughed at me and said that would never happen. After medical school I returned to my hometown and am now a family practice physician at Metro Health Hudsonville, where I know many of my patients so well I do not need a chart."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dykstra "The way I practice family medicine is often referred to as “cradle to grave.” That means I do obstetrics before the baby is born, deliver the baby and provide newborn care; give the child pediatric care as they grow up; and when that child becomes an adult I provide care for the rest of his or her life. In this way, I have been able to care for multiple generations of the same family. Seeing families grow and growing with them as I provide their care gives me great fulfillment.

Years ago, I was caring for a patient in labor and waiting to deliver the baby. Meanwhile, at the same time in the same hospital, I was caring for an elderly person who was enrolled in hospice. During that day I had time to reflect on my practice and my life. I felt that that day summarized the way I wanted to practice medicine and live out my career – I was able to walk two different life journeys with two different families while caring for both of them. That is why I do what I do. "

Be careful. He's as congenial and funny as can be. We went to Dr. Dykstra for about 15 years and about 4 years ago I had symptom after symptom that all fell under the umbrella of a serious autoimmune disease called Systemic Sclerosis. He never did take us seriously enough and we did end up talking...more

He has been my doctor for 7 years. He treats our whole family from infant to adult. He treats us like people and not just another patient. He listens well and is not pushy or rude. He is kind and our kids like him too.
